- f EIGHTEENTH YEAR McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 23 , 19OO. NUMBER 45 For Deaf and Dumb. According to all the information , re ports and estimates obtainable , there are in Nebraska a large number of deaf children not in school. Many parents of deaf children permit them to grow up in ignorance , not knowing that it is pos sible for them to receive an education , or that the state provides such education as freely for the deaf as for the hearing. We take this opportunity to call our readers' attention to the fact that Ne braska has a school for the deaf and dumb , located at Omaha. That the school is absolutely free for the deaf and dumb of Nebraska. That pupils 'deaf or dumb to such an extent that they cannot acquire an education in the pub lic schools , are entitled to admission into this institution. The school occupies six large brick buildings , located upon large and spa cious grounds , about five miles northwest from the postoffice , but within the Oma ha city limits. Twenty teachers are employed to give instruction in the liter- nrjr , articulation , art and industrial schools. It is the earnest desire of the manage ment to bring into this institution every deaf or dumb boy or girl that may be entitled to the benefits of an education there. Tax-Payer. Take Notice ! Your personal tax lor the year 1899 has become delinquent , and is now drawing ten per cent interest. . Your personal tax should be paid promptly each year by YOU and EVERY OTHER TAX-PAYER. The sooner it is paid after delinquency , the less it is , and the better satisfied are both yourself and the treasurer. An active effort will be made to keep the financial condition of the county up to its present high standard. Forcing the collection of the tax is neither a pleasure to the tax-payer nor to the col lector. Please attend to this matter NOW. Yours very truly , O L > . THOMPSON , County Treasurer. P.

An ugly accident befel passenger train No. 5 , last evening about 8 o'clock , jus as the train was about to enter the yarc limits. No lives were lost and no one was seriously injured , but the property damage will tfe considerable. Freight train 150 had just shortly be fore arrived from the west and its engine and way-car had been disconnected from the train , leaving a string of cars on a side-track. While making up the third section of 77 , cars were shunted againsl this string of cars , which moved out ol the yard onto the main line , without the knowledge of the yard crew. At this juncture No. 5 came bowling along in the darkness at a lively pace , colliding with a coal car and grain car with great force. The engine wentinto the ditch , Engineer Dave Magner sus taining injuries to his back not of a ser ious nature ; Fireman Walt Godfrey es caped with but slight injury. The tend er was jammed into the mail car , the end of which was badly damaged. Mail Clerk Hollenbeck was squeezed by the tender about the legs and was not able to resume his run east on 2 , this morn ing.The The two freight cars were considerably smashed up and the baggage car slight ly. Coal and wheat were scattered all over the track in the immediate neigh borhood. All the passengers escaped serious or severe hurts , a number being bruised and cut slightly in the severe shaking up received. The work of clearing the track was at once commenced , and No. 3 was able to pass without delay. No. 5 passed on its way west about midnight. Engineer 227 was greatly damaged , and the wonder is that the engine crew escaped death. Though a regrettable accident , in its results it was most fortunate in that no lives were lost and the injuries so slight. Name a Good Ticket. Pursuant to call , the Republican elect ors of the city met in the city hall , last Friday evening , and placed in nomina tion a city ticket. C.f. f. Babcock presided over the cau cus , C. W. Barnes and E. O. Scott serv ing as secretaries. The caucus was largely attended and its proceedings were most unanimous and harmonious. The only contest of the evening was aetweeu F. D. Harding and J. A. Beyrer for the clerkship , in which the latter was victorious. Practically all the other nominations were made by acclamation , as follows : Mayor A. Barnett. Clerk J. A. Beyrer. Treasurer A. C. Ebert. Engineer C.I. Hall. Police Judge H. H. Berry. Members of board of education D. A. Lucas and Harmon Thompson. Councilnien , First ward S. A. Moore ; Second ward W. T. Coleman. Communications were read from the Abraham Lincoln club of Lincoln ex- .euding an invitation to attend the club Banquet in Lincoln on the 24th ; also rrorn Chairman Teft of the state Repub- ican central committee urging early and careful organization of the Republican forces ; recounting the encouragements of the situation etc. The Republican city committee is as follows : First precinct , First ward , H. H. Troth ; Second precinct , First ward , C. B. Gray ; First precinct , Second ward , F. M. Rathbun ; Second precinct , Second end ward , William Smith. The work of the caucus was quickly Derformed and with a unanimity that promises well for the success of the ex cellent ticket thus placed in the field. A Profitable Success. The banquet held in the opera house , ast Saturday evening , by the members of St. Patrick's parish , commemorative of their patron saint , was a large and jrofitable success. Supper was served "rom 6 to 11:30 ; dancing was in progress from 8:30 to 11:30 : , and both features were generously patronized the net re ceipts being in excess of one hundred dollars. The ladies have been generally com- ilimented upon the excellent and liberal repast served it was notably fine. The McCook orchestra provided the music for the dancing hence that part of the programme did not lack inspira tion and zest. Freight traffic is very heavy , just now : Tuesday there were three sections of 77 n and out of McCook and two sections r > f 63 , together with one extra train. Wednesday and Thursday , there were wo sections of both trains. There were sixteen trains on the board , yesterday , up to noon. The protracted meetings closed , Wednesday night. Evangelist Rowland returned to Colorado , Tuesday night. We hope good results will follow. You know it ! Everist , Marsh & Co. are at the head of the procession when good meats are on parade.

Referring to the approaching retire ment of John Roxby from the Burlington employ , last week , THE TRIBUNE uuin- entionally placed the date one month earlier than it should have. John will not retire until the last of June , and an nounces his purpose to celebrate one more Fourth of July with us before re- iring-to his farm and engaging in the > eaceful pursuit of chicken-raising. As soon as the war in Africa is over and the Boers are defeated , if that should ) e the result , the Burlington railroad will have agents in that country working up emigration to the United States. As the Boers have trekked before to escape English rule it is reasoned they will dose so again if they have the opportunity. lailroad managers believe that no class of people could do more to develop agri culture and stock-raising in the west. An emigrant agent will leave for the Transvaal soon. Omaha special. The following facts are given about he size of the two classes of new engines recently placed in service on the Union ? acific.

The Republicans of McCook are to bt _ congratulated upon their nomination for mayor. In A. Baruett they have secured an ideal standard-bearer ; a business inai whose reputation extends far beyond the confines of the city that should take pleasure in honoring him with the mayoralty ; a clean and honorable am upright citizen devoid of narrowness and bigotry , known for his fair and lib eral views and broad-mindedness. Mr. Barnett is a man of individuality of force and conviction. As a business man of large interests in this city , he is preeminently qualified to administer the business affairs of this municipality. As a lover of law and an upholder of public morals , he will be able to give McCook as clean an administration as can be secured in fact and practice. Though not seeking the nomination , and in fact only accepting it after most urgent solicitation , Mr. Barnett will give the business of the city the same careful , intelligent and energetic attention that has made his personal affairs succeed and prosper , being willing to make the sacrifice from his business affairs for the good of the city.
